Properties of the Check Box filter:


  • The user can change the height, width, top and left position of the check box filter component.

  • The user can set a name to the label and change its font color-style-weight-family from the General Properties.

  • If the Show Checked option is enabled, then by default a checkmark will get enabled.

  • Chrome color is used to set the component background, also the user can change its transparency.

  • A value can be set to the Checked Value so that when the user clicks on the check box, this value will get passed.

Please Note: If initial visibility is not enabled, then the chart won’t be available for the first preview.


  • The user can get the reflection of the chart by enabling the shadow option.

  • The user can also change the color and increase/decrease the transparency of the shadow.
